Jeremy Lin Game Winner 3-Pointer vs Toronto Raptors (VIDEO)

I guess Floyd Mayweather is 41-1 now? Linsanity knows no bounds, as the NY Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin continues his incredible rise from 4th-string backup to overnight NBA star. Tonight Lin scored 27 including 12 in the fourth quarter, and this game winning shot at the buzzer in the clip above. All he needs is to get the turnovers in check and we're straight.

Look for the Jeremy Lin Knick jerseys snapback hats while you still can, and for more insight see Angry Asian Man's list of good stories about the Jeremy Lin phenomenon, including this Time magazine quote:

"[The] embrace of Lin has made millions of Asian Americans feel vicariously, thrillingly embraced. Not invisible. Not presumed foreign. Just part of the team, belonging in the game. It's felt like a breakout moment: for Lin, for Asian America and, thus, for America."
